Groundbreaking in its realism and unmatched for passion, jealousy, and a love triangle turned into crime of passion, this epic ballet depicts Carmen as a leader of change for women’s free choices. Set apart by her taunting beauty, Carmen becomes the obsession of many suitors in her native Seville, Spain. She lays eyes on Don José. Explosive sparks follow, and the ultimate romance of love and passion keeps the audience on the edge of their seats, until the green-eyed jealousy of José pushes him over the edge of crime.

“[Ajkun’s] Carmen is superb…an outstanding success…[her choreography is] a masterly application in technique…wonderfully more elaborate buildings up and much finer characterization of the various personalities”
London Times - Maria Ghirlando
